Mission Statement

Welcome to Urban Outdoor Initiatives!

Urban Outdoor Initiatives (UOI), under the fiscal sponsorship of United Charitable, provides outdoor themed activities and environmental education programs to underrepresented, economically disadvantaged groups, especially people of color in city communities.  Activities, such as camping, hiking, fishing, and other recreational sessions are hosted in neighborhoods, in order to raise awareness and increase the profile of minorities engaging in such initiatives.  This leads to the cultivation of new environmental stewards, a potentially new pipeline for young “green” arena employees and a strengthened community "voice" to improve environmental threats in urban neighborhoods.

Our fiscal sponsor, United Charitable, has a mission to make philanthropy accessible to everyone by providing comprehensive management of donor-advised funds and fiscally sponsored programs. They help people help others throughout communities, the country, and around the world.
